  • Drain the zucchini really well before combining with sour cream mixture.
  • The sour cream mixture is thick in consistency and looks almost like pimento cheese. 
  • Generic butter crackers, bread crumbs, or crushed cornflakes will work instead of Ritz crackers in this creamy zucchini casserole. 
  • This sour cream zucchini can easily be doubled or tripled to serve a bigger crowd!
